About The World Championship of Warhammer 2023
The inaugural World Championships of Warhammer, a four-day event from November 16th to 19th, is set to be a global spectacle of strategy and skill.
Over 340 entrants from more than 40 countries will converge in Atlanta, USA, to compete in Warhammer 40,000, Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Kill Team, and Warhammer Underworlds, each vying for the title of the world’s best Warhammer players.
This championship is not only about the games but also a celebration of the Warhammer community’s dedication and spirit.
Competitors have earned their place through grueling regional tournaments, representing five continents, with countries like Vietnam and Iceland sending a few skilled players, while the host nation, the USA, constitutes less than a third of the total participants.
The tournament structure is rigorous, with players earning World Championship Points (WCPs) for their performance across various categories, including generalship and painting skills.
The points system is designed to give every country a fair chance, regardless of the number of participants, by counting only the top five points per nation and allowing each player to contribute only their highest score.
In Warhammer 40,000, competitors will be divided into pools, with the top players advancing to the Championship Bracket, a double-elimination tournament to crown the Best General.
Those not in the Championship Bracket will compete in the World Bracket, with their performance still crucial for individual awards and their country’s overall ranking.
The event is a tribute to the global Warhammer scene and the independent tournament organizers who foster the community.
Alongside the World Championships, the Grand Narrative will also take place, adding to the weekend’s excitement with a separate campaign in the Patat System for Warhammer 40,000 enthusiasts.
